ARST 4100 Directed Study Margaret Morrison

Summary: ARST 4100 Directed Study
Margaret Morrison
Summer 2011
Cortona Study Abroad
ARST 4100 Course Description This course is designed as a self-directed inquiry into varied
approaches in painting, both representational and non-representational. You may work in the
painting mediums of your choice. Emphasis will be placed on creativity, expression, and
technical skill. Development of a strong work ethic and the ability to think clearly and speak
articulately about your own work and the work of others is emphasized.Focus will be placed on
contemporary art and the development of an understanding of the aesthetic and philosophical
context in which artists work today. Relevant art history examples will be discussed in
conjunction with the scheduled day trips; as well as issues and methods in contemporary painting.
Course Objectives: Although you will be meeting with the 3410 students, you may choose to
follow the 3410 curriculum the first week or two or you may choose to launch immediately into
your own intended body of work and exploration. At the beginning of the semester, you will be
making a presentation to the class which should include the following: a visual presentation of
your work up to this point and a written statement, which outlines a plan of attack or a potential
direction that you would like to pursue. I fully anticipate that after a few days in Italy, you will
have a much clearer idea of what you would like to tackle. I expect to see a dramatic evolution
